Top 4 Fixed For May 27—June 24

This year's Top 4 competition has been fixed from May 27 to June 24.

The sixth edition of the annual contest among the Premier League's top four finishers will involve defending champions Hearts of Oak, Ashantigold, Asante Kotoko and Heart of Lions.

Sources at GHALCA, said arrangements for the tournament were almost completed with only the prize packages yet to be concluded.

The sources said it was likely either the El-Wak Stadium or the Carl Reindorf Park at Dansoman in Accra and the Len Clay Stadium at Obuasi would be used as venues for the competition in view of the proximity of participating clubs to them.

The competition has suffered in recent years from lack of quality venues to accommodate big games such as a Hearts versus Kotoko clash.

Last year, not more than 10,000 fans gained access to the military-owned El-Wak Stadium for the big game between the local giants and their return clash in Sunyani was no better.

All these are issues being tackled in the final days leading to the commencement of the competition which has become a feature of the local football calendar since 2002.

Among the four participants, only Ashantigold have not won the competition. Hearts are the only two-time winners, having won the inaugural edition, while Kotoko and Lions were champions in 2003 and 2005 respectively.
